I love how this recipe turned out! I did make quite a few changes right from the get-go though. First I used about twelve cups of florets three celery stalks two grated carrots and one onion. I cooked the veggies at medium heat for ten minutes using a mixture of chicken broth and some leftover water from steaming vegetables earlier for dinner. I didn't puree all of the vegetables. I left about a cup and a half in their large chunks since I like having something to chew. I also tripled the roux in order to have a creamier soup. In the roux I used a small can of evaporated milk also for a creamier soup. Once the soup was in the final stages of simmering I added about half a cup of shredded mozzarella and a half a cup of grated parmesan. It turned out wonderfully! I don't recommend salt and pepper at the outset. I would suggest that you allow the folks eating your soup to season for themselves.
Absolutely delicious and low-fat too! And it was so quick and easy to make. I didn't have any celery but otherwise followed the recipe and it was great. Everyone asked for more! Thanks for sharing this.
This was a great basic recipe. After I read others comments It sounded like it was a little thin. So I added a potato and added cornstarch to the skim milk and it was Great!!! Really thick and creamy. I also added just a little cheese to help also. Very health too.
When I make this soup I add 1/2 cup minute rice when adding the broccoli. I also omit the salt and add i cup of grated smoky cheese when adding the milk. This thickens the soup and gives it a nice flavor.
Very delicious and healthy soup. I added the zest of a lemon. Lemon goes great with broccoli and the lemon zest smells great. Also added a little fresh oregano and parsley. I used a little less ff milk. The soup came out very good. I will make it again. Thanks for the recipe.
